Welcome to Weekly Round Up, our podcast discussing the latest tech trends, innovation, and news from the last few days.

This week, Hadlee Simons plays host to Graham van der Made and Matthew Alexander.

We discuss the death of Blackberry’s smartphone division and the news that Lenovo’s Moto-branded devices are finally coming to South Africa next month. On the Ventureburn front, we talk about the Ventureburn Pitching Den at this past weekend’s Innovation Summit. For Memeburn lovers, we talk Disney’s thoughts about buying Twitter and, finally, the FIA World Rallycross Championships is coming to South Africa in 2017 for Motorburn fans.

What are we watching, reading, playing: Graham can’t pull himself away from Dragon Quest VII (ReCore puts him to sleep), Matthew is watching The Exorcist and playing NBA 2K17 while Hadlee is playing Forza Horizon 3.

Tweet of the Week: Blackberry gets burned. Pretty badly.
